Vampire Kisses: Blood Relatives, Vol. 1

Vampire Kisses: Blood Relatives, Vol. 1 - Ellen Schreiber, Rem This manga is cliched Shoujo at its cheesiest. The story is nonexistent, and the romantic element is alternately shallow and sappy. The dialogue tries very hard to be witty but doesn't quite hit the mark. It's only saving grace is that the artwork is actually quite good. The Gothic artwork is beautiful and the characters, while all extremely shallow and not developed at all, are very good looking. It's obvious that the character models and clothing were very well thought out, so it's a shame that the characters themselves were not. This is basically an imitation Shoujo that tries to incorporate romance and suspense, but fails in nearly every aspect of both of them.
